Harris, Heemels medal on trampoline

Kaleigh Harris claimed a gold medal and Adrian Heemels earned silver in last week's trampoline competition in Burnaby.

Kaleigh Harris claimed a gold medal and Adrian Heemels earned silver as the Funtastic Gymnastics Club of Port Hardy kicked off its competitive season with a trampoline gymnastics competition last week in Burnaby.

Former Port Hardy standout Brittany Falconer, who now trains on the Lower Mainland, also earned silver in the Senior Women’s Individual Trampoline, the highest competitive category in Canada.

Harris won her title in the Provincial Level 2 women’s individual trampoline, and added a ninth-place showing in the double-mini trampoline. She was joined in the classification by teammate Cassidy Mose, who placed fifth in the double-mini and 11th in individual trampoline.

Heemels was second in the Provincial Level 1 women’s individual trampoline and was sixth in double-mini trampoline. Teammate Macy Hurley notched a pair of top-10 showings, finishing seventh in individual trampoline and eighth in double-mini trampoline. A third member of the club’s Level 1 delegation, Ashley Cadwallader, was 17th in individual trampoline and 23rd in double-mini in the largest field of the competition, with 33 competitors.

“It was a truly spectacular finish for these first-time competitors,” Funtastic Gymnastics coach Heidi Falconer said. “The weekend was truly an awesome experience for our North Island gymnasts, who are now pumped to be back at the gym and getting ready for their next meet, where we will be amidst Canada’s best.”

The team will return to competition in Kamloops Mar. 14-16 for the Elite Canada meet.
